I realized the following needs for anyone who is running a website:
A website is always changing eg. themes, blocks, tplsets, uploaded contents.
Some changes made online in different locations so changes are only on the web not on your computer.

What changes?
- database
- tplsets
- uploaded files (albums, downloads etc)

What I need?
- One button click to backup database only (Nagl's Backup is good, but I think put it in mainmenu is easier ti use then in a block)
- One button click to backup to backup selected folders
- configurable which folders to backup
- auto zip folders
- option to mail or download zipped folder
- One button click to backup the whole site
- backup database
- backup every folder
- option to mail or download zipped folder

Nagl's Backup can be the base to develeop this module. It needs to put the above features to be a complete backup solution.
It would spare much time for us and the ultimate and the only reasonable solution.
If you running many XOOPS sites you will understand why I wrote this post.

I do not have enough php exercise to modify the current backup module. Does anybody have it? I am sure this module would top downloads...

I have 6 XOOPS sites running, some time ago I tried to find a solution for the back up problem "we" have. CPanel hosting is not an option for people that hire webspace from a hosting company.

It would indeed be an improvement to have an integrated backup system wich can save the complete "setup" to harddisk.

That't right cpanel is not widely available, I'd better say nowhere is available in Europe. And in other hand 3rd party solution is not enough for a professional website.

My ideal would be a straight forward backup AND restore module.

- Save snapshots of the site automatically
- Incremental backups
- Restore the site to a previous state
- Admin settings for number and frequency of backups
- Save specific parts of the database

In a perfect world, this would be a part of the standard admin functions. It would also include some method of checking for updated modules though that doesn't seem doable at this point.

phpBB does have a one button restore and a one button save. You have the option to save structure with data or any combination.

Our organization is using phpBB for project management and I wonder what are some of the drawbacks of the forum module and XOOPS with regards to maintenance and management issues. The ease of backing up and restoring are very important functions
